Serves: 4
  • 1 bag Alexia waffle sweet potato fries
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 4 Tlbs. brown sugar, divided
  • ½ tsp. dried mustard
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ lb. brie
  • Parsley for garnish
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Grease a large, rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place a cookie cooling rack on another large baking sheet. Spread fries on baking sheet.
  3. Add 3 Tlbs. brown sugar, dried mustard, and cayenne to a small plate. Use a fork or whisk to mix the ingredients together. Coat each piece of bacon in the brown sugar (both front and back). Line the bacon up on the baking sheet fit with a cooking cooling rack.
  4. Place the fries on the top rack in the oven, and place the bacon on the bottom rack.
  5. Bake fries for 15 minutes, then use a spatula to flip all of the fries. Bake another 5-10 minutes or until fries are crisp. (They will crisp up more as they sit.) Let cool slightly. Bake bacon until brown sugar is caramelized and bacon is cooked, about 12 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees.
  6. Immediately remove bacon from cookie rack and place on a cutting board. Let cool slightly, and then chop into small pieces.
  7. Dot pieces of brie all over fries and then sprinkle with chopped bacon followed by remaining brown sugar. Place back in the oven and cook until brie is gooey and melted, about 5-6 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle with parsley.
